About us

Kennedys is the first international law firm specialising in insurance law to open in Peru. We advise insurers and reinsurers on claims coverage advice, policy wordings and disputes and provide local and international arbitration services. We also specialise in regulatory advice and commercial law.

The Lima office is led by the renowned Peruvian insurance lawyer Marco Rivera Noya, and supported by Jorge Mere, who was previously based in our Latin American hub in Miami. Our local team of insurance specialists works closely with our network of offices across the region, as well as our colleagues in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

Our Peruvian insurance and reinsurance professionals are part of the wider Kennedys network. In this region, the team is led by Alex Guillamont, Head of our Latin American and Caribbean practice, in our Miami office, and supported by our international insurance team. This includes the London Market team and international offices who handle some of the most significant insurance and reinsurance claims and disputes internationally.

Kennedys won Latin American Law Firm of the Year in the Reactions Latin American Insurance and Reinsurance Awards 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Our approach

We are regarded as leaders, not just because we have some of the most respected legal minds in their field - but because we know it's important to be practical, commercial and approachable. We give clear legal advice.

Answers - not just more questions
Recommendations - not just options
Strategy and tactics - not just legal view in a vacuum
Plain language - not just legalese, clauses and caveats

We call this: Legal advice in black and white.
